Potential Benefits: The main function (and some say only function) of cobalt is to prevent anaemia. It works with Vitamin B12 in the production of red blood cells (haemoglobin), and to ensure the health of the nervous system.
Description: Cobalt is an essential trace mineral that is a constituent of Vitamin B12. The amount of cobalt you have in your blood is dependent on the amount that is in the soil, where your foods are grown.
Only small amounts of this mineral are required by the body.
Potential Side Effects: Excessive amounts of cobalt can cause nausea, and damage the heart, kidneys and nerves and might decrease fertility in men.
Potential Interaction: Cobalt in small amounts is essential to many living organisms, including humans. Having 0.13 to 0.30 parts per million of cobalt in soils markedly improves the health of grazing animals.
Cobalt is a central component of the Vitamin cyanocobalamin, or Vitamin B12. Cobalt and Vitamin B12 have possible interaction with Vitamin B 15. This is potentially controversial, as many medical establishments don’t regard it as a vitamin.
General Usage: May be taken daily.
Food Sources: Green Leafy vegetables, Broccoli, Dandelion, Dark Chocolate, Spinach, Eggs, Meat, Liver, Milk, Fish, Oysters and Clams. See Vitamin B12
